  1. I haven't seen keichousaurus with hollows in the matrix like in this specimen (but they don't look like the bubble defects from a replica mold). I'm guessing it's real but I've never seen one without all of the prep damage that is typically present.
  2. Hello all, I'm interested in these keichousaurus brothers. The seller has reserved the matrix for me, and I would love to understand some things before I buy. Better first ask to avoid bad surprises later ;-) Hope some of the experts here can support me. My questions are Is it an original/authentic fossil and not a replica? Guess it is original ;-) The quality of preparation seems to be below average? What is this untypical light-grey cloud around the right brother? Cheap prep? It looks a bit flat to me, not really 3d-look bones, is this from erosion?
  3. Hello! I am brand new to fossils but fell for the Keichousaurus. After combing through old Fossil Forum posts on different prep methods, I’ve been on the hunt for a nicely prepared specimen. I found this one from a friendly, reputable seller and the prep looks great compared to everything else I can find online. However I’m looking for a dorsal specimen ideally, and this one is not exactly cheap. How hard will it be to match this prep quality in a dorsal specimen? Are we talking years of looking for a similarly nice piece or do they pop up fairly regularly?
  4. Hello! First, does anyone know what the mineral composition of most keich fossils is? The common darkly colored ones? Or does it vary a great deal? I have some idea what to look for in the “normal” dark keich fossils, but this one appears to be composed of mostly quartz…? Or is it something else? This seems challenging to fake and the photos look convincing to me, but I have no experience in comparing these white keich specimens. Is this likely to be real?
  5. This question should probably go on the general discussion, but I post it here on the chance that the answer might point at some form of fakety. I am intrigued by this K. being offered fo sale. How was it prepared? To my untrained eye, there seem to be no signs of tools. Judging by the areas surrounding the fossile, it would appear that some kind of acid (?) has been used, thar corroded the stone matrix away while leaving the bones intact (?!?) Is something like that possibile?
  6. Hi, I found this fossil sold online, what are your opinions about it? In general, are auction sites good websites to buy fossils or have you a website to suggest where I can buy fossils original? Thank you for your help!!
  7. I'm looking at purchasing this little fellow and I basically wanted some third party views on the legitimacy of the fossil. Here's my thoughts. The layout of the fossil looks different to fakes that I've seen as it is hunched over on itself in quite a natural death pose meaning the fossilised bone is stacked a little on parts. I believe this would be difficult to fake and also what's the point making your work harder when producing fakes. Also the small size and amount of detail included makes me think its real. The other detail that makes me belive it could be authentic is that the tiny tail
  8. I've become very interested in purchasing a Keichousaurus fossil. As an avid collector of ancient coins, I know how easily such things can be fabricated and altered, so I wanted to get the opinions of some enthusiasts. I just wanted to know based on the photos if you all think the fossil is genuine or not. Thank you all in advanced!
  9. Hi all Im looking at this Keichousaurus fossil and would love to hear your insight in regards to the authenticity of it and the quality? It is original? How much restoration or painting? What is giving it away? thank you
  10. Hi there, Currently I'm in position to buy a keichousaurus. Unfortunately I'm not an expert and would like your opinion on the following: is it authentic and how good is the preparation that was done? I have a few photo's to share. Hopefully you can help me out. Many thanks in advance. Tim

    Keichousaurus hatchling?

    This hatchling was found at Fuyuan of Yunnan Province, China. It looks like Keichousaurus but it has a distinctly rounder skull, longer neck and a shorter tail. Could it be the hatchling of another species like Dianopachysaurus dingi? I also attach a typical Keichousaurus hatchling for easy comparison.
  12. Hello, experts, I need your help and advice. Do you think it is a real or fake fossil? The last one shows the original slab. Thanks! I appreciate!

    Overlapping Keichousaurus

    This fossil plate is interesting, it seems there are two or three Keichousarus overlapping with each other. Could they be copulating? Or just by coincidence fossilized on top of each other?

    Keichousaurus Juvenile

    From the album: Robs Fossil Collection

    A superb Juvenile Keichousaurus with amazing bones, no acid prep whatsoever Matrix size is 6" x 3.5" Approx. This one was gift for my son, we will treasure for life and be forever grateful for, thank you, you know who you are
  15. Managed to get another small/baby Keichousaurus for my small but growing fossil collection, I quite like it I also managed to find a couple of nice books too
  16. Hi guys I'm new here! Hope to find everybody well! I just want to ask for your feedback around a specimen of Keichousaurus I'm nearly to buy. What do you think? Does it seems real and legit to you? Many thanks for your kind feedback. Cap
  17. Hello ! And thank you for accepting me on this forum. Ive just bought my very first fossil, after some discussion with some collectors ive decided to post this fossil here. Because there are alot of fake ones of this species. If anyone could help me with this fossil i would be extremely gratefull as im learning every day ! So all the tips given are very helpfull to me . Ill post the pictures of the fossil below (PS, if it arrives or is proven fake i will get a refund, the owner also send me a video with solvent rubbing on the fossil to show its not paint) he also s
  18. Hi guys looking for some professional advice. Possibly buying this Keichousaurus and wondered if any experts can confirm it is a genuine/real one and not a fake or reproduction? This is the only pic I took sorry, thank you for any advice.
  19. This juvenile Keichousaurus should be a genuine one but I don't understand why it appears to have two separate vertebral columns. It doesn't seem like the vertebral column is split into two due to fossilization process. Any idea?
  20. I recently saw the pictured Keichousaurus for sale from China. Considering the sheer amount of fakes I very skeptical however, they, for the most part, are in uncommon positions and show good removal of the matrix. Are these authentic or have the dealers in China upped their game on fakes.
  21. Hello does this looks good or bad. I know these are not rare but good quality is pretty hard to find. So i hope this is real deal Thanks
  22. Hi everyone! I've always had a love of paleontology and been fossil-hunting as a child (I've found mainly plant fossils, some incomplete trilobites, some unknown fragments of bone). The fossils I've found were usually incomplete and very weathered by the elements, but it was very rewarding knowing that I was holding a piece of real prehistoric history. I've always been fascinated by dinosaurs and other prehistoric reptiles, but never had the pleasure and luck of finding one "in the wild". So of course I took the natural route of going online! I'm very very inexperienced in terms of
  23. Hello community, A friend of mine recently gifted me this keichousaurus. But as you can see the Preperation is not the cleanest/nicest. Can I as an amateur fix this by myself or make it look cleaner and nicer? I also had the Idea that I maybe could work from the other side with Acid layer by layer. Then I could also be able to see the upper side of the specimen rather than its belly. Or would that not work/ be to risky? Isbthe rock maybe to thin? Can i as an amateur who never worked on a fossil with acid before make that or is it generally not possible?
  24. Hello communtity, So I recently got a keichousaurus as a gift, and due to the fact that therer are a lot of fake specimen out there i was a bit worried if this one is real or not? How can I tell the difference between a real and a fake one? It is also very heavy for its size. What do I have to look out for?
